Hisense shows off their Android powered LCD control panels at CES. The HiSense Smart Refrigerator integrates the tablet so not only can you get that shopping list sent to your phone but also use it to communicate with the family. The concept includes a bar code scanner that enables real-time inventory awareness and the tablet can communicate shopping lists directly to smart phones and keep track of the freshness status of the items in the fridge.
The tablet allows you to leave notes, take photos, and communicate to smartphones. Recipe favorites can be incorporated into the inventory planning, as well as keeping track of specific diets and nutrition.
This unit is being introduced into China, and should be in the US in the next 12-18 months.
